A predominately quantitative online survey was launched on Tuesday 22 September and open until Thursday 8 October.
It was promoted through various marketing and communications to maximise consultation engagement and subsequent response rate:

- Visitors (people that travel to/through the area from other areas of Portsmouth or from outside the city)
In total 919 people interacted with the survey.
